Sydney, I can not thank you enough for making this for me. it was a highlight of my day.
i am scanning the incredible frames right now and putting them on in a minute.

The frames had so much detail and will be such a memory of my daughters during this time.
Thank you so much. The ribbonwork on the pillow is amazing and i love the texture of the fabric!!!
A million pink thank yous!

I added the frames.

Sydney made me 3 frames one for each of my girls. They all had a photo of something that represented this past year. Annie kate had all of her Tennessee friends, Caroline fishing with dad and Sally Jane with chocolate all over her face.
she put little sayings all over the fram that represented all the things they love and do.
It is an incredible gift and the fact that you took the time for each of them. thank you!!!!

What a great idea to turn the Pink Christmas logo into a pillow, that's especially perfect for you! And the personalized frames, that's just plain thoughtful.

Thanks again Kristi for making this possible are we signing up already for next year yet??!!

This is a fantastic gift. So perfect for Kristi! I love the pillow and the frames. They are not only very pleasing to look at, but also expertly made and thoughtful. Wonderful, wonderful!

Kristi,

I'm so glad you like it!! I really was quite nervous having received your name for the draw. I just really wanted you to feel loved and appreciated with your gift. I had originally planned to go with the picture frame theme, as I know you love to take pictures. So, I made the ones for the girls, and did the pottery one for you. (I'm glad you like the ones for the girls. You can replace the pictures, they didn't turn out very clear copied from your smug-mug account.) But when the Paint Your Own Pottery one didn't turn out the way I wanted it to, then I had to think of something else. My sister-in-law made me a pillow when we moved into our new house. She cross-stitched it, but I thought I'd try the ribbon. I hand sewed the Pink Christmas logo on. I wanted to add the date or something but I was afraid I'd mess it up - lol!! And I love the fabric too. :) I did hope that it could be something for you to remember Pink Christmas with. You have started something amazing Kristi. You really are a wonderful woman and so many lives have been blessed by you. Thank you for all you do!! Merry Pink Christmas!!
